Sorry, We Don’t Take Obamacare; The Cruel Compassion of Transgender Acceptance...more

NYT: Sorry, We Don’t Take Obamacare
Amy Moses and her circle of self-employed small-business owners were supporters of President Obama and the Affordable Care Act. They bought policies on the newly created New York State exchange. But when they called doctors and hospitals in Manhattan to schedule appointments, they were dismayed to be turned away again and again with a common refrain: “We don’t take Obamacare,” the umbrella epithet for the hundreds of plans offered through the president’s signature health legislation.

“Anyone who is on these plans knows it’s a two-tiered system,” said Ms. Moses, describing the emotional sting of those words to a successful entrepreneur.

“Anytime one of us needs a doctor,” she continued, “we send out an alert: ‘Does anyone have anyone on an exchange plan that does mammography or colonoscopy? Who takes our insurance?’ It’s really a problem.”...

Canada: Doctors want protection to ‘opt out’ of assisted suicide: ‘I just don’t feel killing them is compassionate’  ...As Bill C-14, the Liberal government’s assisted dying law, moves back to the House of Commons next week, an emotional debate is flaring over whether doctors should be free to refuse to participate in any way in a medical act they consider morally wrong.

Some are accusing their regulators of bullying and coercion for threatening disciplinary action if they don’t provide an “effective referral.” Groups such as the Christian Medical and Dental Society of Canada are demanding legislative protections for conscience rights across the country similar to those given priests who refuse to perform same-sex marriages.

Others, including a prominent bioethicist, argue no health system in the country should be obligated to accommodate doctors’ conscientious objections...

Millennials Embrace Socialism, but Do They Know What It Is? ...Writing in The Federalist, Emily Ekins and Joy Pullmann note that many of these young people think socialism is federally mandated niceness. A 2014 Reason-Rupe survey asked Millennials to define socialism. They had in mind a more generous safety net, more kindness and, as one put it, more “being together.”

But when asked if they agreed with a more technically accurate definition of socialism — government control of the economy — support dropped considerably (though not nearly enough). Given a choice between a government-managed economy and a free-market economy, Millennials overwhelmingly chose the latter. It seems young people realize that putting bureaucrats in charge of Uber wouldn’t work too well.

Still, it boggles the mind that anyone can see the folly of having the government take over Amazon or Facebook but be blind to the problems of having the government run health care...

UK Midwives revolt over abortion-Fury as their feminist union chief backs bid to axe ANY time limit on terminations ...And without consulting members, she signed the union up to the service’s campaign to ‘decriminalise’ abortion by scrapping the 24-week legal cut-off for terminations.

Last night, ‘appalled’ MPs said Prof Warwick should resign, and thousands of midwives and members of the public signed a ‘Not in our name’ petition, demanding that she reverses the policy which ‘represents a disgraceful betrayal of her profession’....

Obama doesn't think rapists, armed robbers, drug dealers are criminals-they are declared “justice-involved individuals.”   ...When you think about it, Jack the Ripper was merely a “cutlery-involved individual” while Jeffrey Dahmer was simply a “unconventional dietary-options-involved individual.”...

Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: ‘Transgendered Men Don’t Become Women,’ They Become ‘Feminized Men,’ ‘Impersonators’ ...When “the tumult and shouting dies,” McHugh continued, “it proves not easy nor wise to live in a counterfeit sexual garb. The most thorough follow-up of sex-reassigned people—extending over 30 years and conducted in Sweden, where the culture is strongly supportive of the transgendered—documents their lifelong mental unrest.”

“Ten to 15 years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate of those who had undergone sex-reassignment surgery rose to 20 times that of comparable peers,” said McHugh...

The Cruel Compassion of Transgender Acceptance
... Transgender people descend into despair when even all the medicine and medical advances that everyone encouraged can't change their biological reality. In fact, the medicine used on younger individuals prior to surgeries causes its own harms.

As gender dysphoria becomes more accepted as normal for children, "supportive" adults lead children to "helpful" doctors who use various "treatments" to block puberty. Some can merely delay puberty for a few years. But the blockers lock the child into sterility and health risks in their tweens and early teens...
